The Richard H. Thornton Library announces the addition of Stefani Perry as Adult Services Librarian.
A New Hampshire native, Perry grew up in the Butner/Creedmoor area and is a graduate of Granville Central High School. With a major in Liberal Studies/Humanities from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, she also holds a Masters degree in Library Information Science.
In her role as Adult Services Librarian, Perry will oversee the programs, services and special events provided by the library for those over the age of 18. Her plans include to establish a new book club for young adult novels, as well as initiating a regularly-scheduled “Coffee with Stefani” event, where library patrons can come in and discuss suggestions and concerns in an informal setting.
Perry is married and has recently moved back to the Granville County area after living several years in California and in Japan with her husband, who served in the U.S. Marine Corps. Her first day of work at the Thornton Library was June 3, as Adult Services Librarian Ashley Wilson phases out her employment with the Granville County Library System. Wilson will be moving out of the area in mid-July.
The Richard H. Thornton Library is located at 210 Main Street in Oxford, and is one of four public libraries in the Granville County Library System. Other branches are located in Creedmoor (South Branch), Stovall and Berea.
